Forum: GratefulDead Subject: 1000 Recordings to Hear Before You Die

Tom Moon, a music critic, has written a book listing 1000 recordings to hear before you die. The list includes all types of music - rock, jazz, country, classical, world, etc. Of course, I immediately searched for the Dead and he has American Beauty!

yet another "safe" list by yet another music critic, just shake a bag of big sellers from the different genres, throw in a few slightly lesser known products (but still "safe"), and shake out a thousand, and voila, a ready-made list; i have several albums that i use as a barometer for these kind of lists, and while a few did actually make Moon's list (Sonic Youth's 'Daydream Nation', Television's 'Marquee Moon', and the Ramones 'The Ramones'), strangly absent from Moon's "safe" list is anything by these artists:

Bad Religion
Dinosaur Jr.
The Feelies
Hot Tuna
Jefferson Airplane
Slint

and numerous more, but these strike me as shockingly absent; even putting aside the much less known Slint and their seminal, highly influential album 'Spiderland', what's up with Hot Tuna not even making the list (not to mention 'After Bathing At Baxters' by the Airplane?)

I wonder where he came up with the list. How many of those 1,000 do you suppose he has listened to personally? Just another "top 100 whatever" lists that are subject to personal tastes.

Glad to see The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway on there. It has always been a favorite of mine.
